Not using Ebates? Let me change your mind!

EbatesHere are a few reasons why some of my readers are not using Ebates, a cash-back site, with my responses based on my own experience of shopping through Ebates for over 4 years.

1. “I’m skeptical because it sounds too good to be true”

It’s true! Ebates pays their members the cash back they’ve earned every three months and they are one of the original cash-back shopping sites.

2. “It’s not enough cash back to bother with”

Pennies add up, so while the cash back from one specific purchase may not be much – the cash back from ten purchases will add up.

3. “It’s too complicated”

It’s one extra step – you visit before shopping online and find the store you want to shop at.

4. “I don’t use PayPal”

You don’t have to get your cash back via PayPal. Ebates is happy to mail you a check every three months.

5. “I don’t shop online”

That’s a great reason not to use Ebates! But I invite you to explore replacing some of your in-store purchases with online purchases if you can get a better price and save time shopping.

If you don’t use Ebates, I’m interested in hearing the reason why. Please leave a comment or email me.

I have an account with ebates and have yet to use it, every time I want to make a purchase online the items I want are never included in the departments that provide cash back. which makes this program useless to me, i wish they gave cash back for all departments

I prefer Mypoints because you can earn rewards by shopping, searching, AND surveys
